Mission: Journeys in Film advances global learning through the powerful combination of age-appropriate films from around the world, interdisciplinary classroom materials, and professional development workshops. Designed to develop 21st century skills, this comprehensive curriculum model promotes widespread use of film as a "window to the world" to help secondary students to mitigate existing attitudes of cultural bias and racism, cultivate empathy, develop a richer understanding of global issues, and prepare for effective participation in the world economy - as active global citizens. Journeys ' methodology uses the visual storytelling of films as a tool for engaging and inspiring students-connecting them with their peers and locations around the world while building core academic skills. Journeys ' inter-disciplinary curriculum guides include lesson plans and extension activities in science, math, language arts, social studies, visual arts, media literacy, critical-thinking, problem-solving and inter-cultural communication. The comprehensive interdisciplinary model allows for a team teaching and cross-curricular implementation, in order to foster deeper learning with real-life connections at the individual, familial, community, national and international levels. The result is an immersive, high-impact experience for students in any educational setting. Selected films showcase stories that have universal appeal and portray shared values. The overall message is simple: cultures of the world share more commonalities than differences.

Journeys in Film advances global learning through the powerful combination of age-appropriate films from around the world, interdisciplinary classroom materials, and professional development workshops. Designed to develop 21st century skills, this comprehensive curriculum model promotes widespread use of film as a “window to the world” to help secondary students to mitigate existing attitudes of cultural bias and racism, cultivate human empathy and compassion, develop a richer understanding of global issues, and prepare for effective participation in the world economy – as active global citizens. Journeys’ methodology uses the visual storytelling of films as a tool for engaging and inspiring students—connecting them with their peers and locations around the world while building core academic skills. Journeys’ inter-disciplinary curriculum guides include lesson plans and extension activities in science, math, language arts, social studies, visual arts, media literacy, critical-thinking, problem-solving and inter-cultural communication. The comprehensive interdisciplinary model allows for a team teaching and cross-curricular implementation, in order to foster deeper learning with real-life connections at the individual, familial, community, national and international levels. The result is an imersive, high-impact experience for students in any educational setting. Selected films showcase stories that have universal appeal and portray shared values. The overall message is simple: cultures of the world share more commonalities than differences.
